    Dave, you’re having a different conversation than the one that was started in the original tweet.

    I really don’t care about the examples you’ve given here. I care about the completely broken and *ist SYSTEM that results in the tired trop of ‘white hero saves entire group of marginalized people.’ OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I care that non-white, non-straight, non-male people don’t get to enjoy entertainment that reflects our lives unless it’s about ‘overcoming our lot’ or having a bit part as someone’s side kick or best friend.

    I’m still looking into why comments are closed, but if you tweet replies to the original tweet, they’ll show up here.
